dave ross joins us to talk a little redskins football. i have to admit i was wrong. >> didn't see that coming, did you? >> i was wrong. i thought the score might be the same but another way around. >> i bet a lot of people wake up and think the same thing you do which is how in the world did that happen? this is a bad rams team. let's make no bones about it. they lost the first two and they lost to the raiders and the cardinals. >> those two peoples are not very good. the bottom line is this is unacceptable for the washington redskins this. cannot happen. i know it is on the road. i know it is tough and we talked about it last week. these are the types of games that you are going to be a play offteam you have to win. mike shanahan knows that better than anybody.
5:55am
what an all of start yesterday for the redskins. steven jackson, we talked about him on friday. this was the main weapon for the rams and he showed it early. first drive, there he goes to the house. 7-0 just like that. he was a nonfactor. he got injured in the second half and didn't play. the skins come right back. mcnabb in the middle. santana moss out. his hands and in james butler's hands. when you are on the road, steve, can you not have starts like this and expect to come back and win. now, the redskins did respond. >> they did, very nicely. >> here is donovan mcnabb. this is what you love to see in the rollout. it is 14 left hand -- it is 14- 10. look at. this right oefelein and blocks the field goal at the end of the first half. >> how intimidating is that for the kicker to see him coming at you.
5:56am
you think here they go. up top, santana moss. >> game over. >> first an gold. they had to set follow i afield goal. that was a problem. 16-14. too many field goals. without steven jackson, you can't let kenneth darby beat you but he does. you got that feeling in the second half that, deangelo hall falls down. there goes mark clayton. and again, when you make comments like you did a week ago and you come back this week, you got a big taring oat your back, this is what is going to happen. mike shanahan, kyle shanahan going back to the drawing board. this team is now 1-2. there are no moral victories in the nfl. a lot of people viewed that as i moral victory last week. not this week. not when you lose to the rams and after the players in the locker room not very happy about what happened. >> they did the job. they played well. we didn't step up and do the things we needed to do to win
5:57am
especially on the road. >> you have to be able to change the outcome. we found ourselves in a similar situation obviously the same as last week. you got to score. and field goals come back to helicopter you. we had opportunities again in that second half to get ourselves back in that red zone to score and we just didn't capitalize. >> that is exactly the point. there it is right there. when you are kicking too many field goals in the red scone, you can't do that t doesn't matter who you play. eventually, that is going to bite you. it bit them yesterday. >> you can't score three and give up seven. you said the rams not a good team. they were definitely the bet are team yesterday. >> they flat-out beat the redskins that. shouldn't happen. that is the point. they were better yesterday than the redskins. and you cannot go out on the road and play as farly as you did in the first six minutes
5:58am
and come back. >> let's talk next hour about the energy level on the field and some layers who didn't seem to have it all together. >> we'll check your morning commute and it is a wet one so far on this monday morning. it look like it will stay that way throughout the day. we'll be back after this.
